What Clients Say

Corporate & Group Development Programs


Toni’s workshops are absolutely awesome!! She was able to satisfy the needs of my organization, was responsive to group dynamics, and offered superb experiential lessons to propel us into the new school year.  Toni tailored the learning experience exclusively for our unique student culture. I highly recommend Toni’s workshops. You will not be disappointed. 

– Micah Brownstein, Deputy Head of School & Dean of Students, Olney Friends School, OH

Prior to the event, Toni asked about the issues and challenges we were facing as a faculty. She was able to weave these things into our session making the message even more powerful. Thanks!

– Kelly Hunter-Rice, School Counselor, Marburn Academy, OH

Toni was very professional, pleasant and inspiring. She was able to engage the entire team when some were very reluctant to participate. We would recommend her highly.

– CEO, Quality Care Partners, Zanesville, OH

Toni took the time to become familiar with the values and mission our school strives to pass on to our students and incorporated these ideas into the program.

Toni Kellar has an enthusiasm that is contagious.
